Oh by the way, folks,
Today we celebrate the birthday of Carl Linnaeus, born in 1707. He was a biologist who attempted to classify all types of life forms. He made lotsa mistakes, of course, but hey, he was a pioneer in his field, and all first-time explorers draw the map wrong!
For instance, he tried to stuff all life forms into only two kingdoms, Animals and Plants, a scheme that was still being slavishly followed by a few antiquarians as late as 1968.
We now know that Animals and Plants are only two of the 26 or 27 kingdoms in the Eukaryote Empire alone, and there are three other empires, Bacteria, Archaea, and Viruses.
Nothing happened yesterday.
For today, my Quest Of The Day will be to try to find time between thunderstorms to mow the lawn at St Peters Chapel. Other than that, I suppose nothing's probably gonna happen.
